Manju Puri and David Robinson

Join us as Manju Puri, J.B. Fuqua Professor of Finance, and David Robinson, J. Rex Fuqua Professor of International Management, present:

Personality Traits, Attitudes and Managerial Decision Making

In this session you will learn:

  • How one’s level of optimism from low to extreme affects decision making
  • How CEOs’ personal attitudes like risk aversion or optimism affect their companies’ corporate actions
  • How varying levels of optimism affect the intensity and success of an MBA student’s job search
  • Why peer perceptions of one’s optimism only explain part of the effect

The session with Professors Puri and Robinson took place in October 2013.
